According to BMW, the Link is at home in urban environments, thanks to its fast acceleration, compact proportions and easy handling. A low overall height makes getting on it from the side or the back easy, while a reverse gear makes maneuvering into tight city spaces a simple task. The seat bench can accommodate two passengers, so you can bring a friend along for the ride if needed.
It is not known if the Link will enter production. Would you buy one if it did?
